The first Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt in the world is just about to open... and it's going to be right here on our very own island.

The unique event, which officially kicks off on Saturday and runs till next Wednesday, will feature "world class events not just for youths but events for children and all families". Open for tourists and local families, there will be shows spread throughout various locations around the island.

"This treasure hunt shall be based around creating exclusive Nickelodeon experiences and rewards at select attractions around the Maltese Islands," an official statement said. "Activities will include searching for SpongeBob SquarePants and friends at the National Aquarium, learning through play with the PAW Patrol pups at the Esplora Science Centre, learning to duel with Nella the Princess Knight at the 16th-century St James Cavalier, and joining the pizza-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Is-Suq Tal-Belt food market."

"In addition to the character experiences at the selected attractions, a free live theatre show at Pjazza Teatru Rjal will kick things off over the opening weekend, with slime-filled challenges and a multi-character musical show for kids and families. A Nickelodeon Multi-Media Exhibition and Workshop Hub will be open throughout the week at St James Cavalier, with the week’s activity being rounded off with a carnival-style parade through Valletta Old Town."

If you want to attend, plan ahead - the tickets for the Teatru Rjal shows have already sold out, and the treasure hunt itself will be occurring from Monday to Wednesday across the island.

Also, awesomely, nearly all the sets, stages, floats and parade items were manufactured locally under the Nickelodeon brand guidelines by Maltese craftsmen.
